Watery Eyes


Watery eye (also called epiphora) is a common ophthalmic complaint. There is an impression among most of the GPs that watery eyes always means blocked tear ducts. Blocked tear ducts is a main, but by no mean the only cause of watery eyes. Management of this problem depends on the cause and may vary from simple minor procedure to major ophthalmic, and also occasionally nasal, surgery.
